Changing Focus

shutter-1237247_1280kropkiTEAM’s 2017 conference is going to be held on May 19th at the Canadian Mennonite University. Come back or find us on social media for more updates as they come out.

The theme or this year’s conference is “Changing Focus”. Our theme reflects the wide variety of contexts, stakeholders, and methodologies that comprise the dynamic picture of ESL teaching in Manitoba and across Canada. We would like to encourage educators to shift their focus from their everyday context to see new perspectives on the roles of teacher and learners, planning and assessment, and community engagement. By changing our focus, parts of that picture that normally seem ‘blurred’ o overlooked can become more clear to us.

This conference is an opportunity for individuals in the field to come together to share their own perspectives and learn from the views and stories of others. We also aim to involve learners an community stakeholders in the conference in order to have a conference that represents the ‘big picture’ of ESL education in Manitoba.
